One-year plan: 2 Chronicles 32-34, Acts 9:1-25

Two-year plan: Joshua 5-6, Luke 6:37-49


As Sennacherib, King of Assyria, prepared to attack Jerusalem, a war of words developed. On one hand, King Hezekiah of Judah made it clear that the people of God had Him on their side: “He [Sennacherib] has only human strength, but we have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles” (2 Chron 32:8). Sennacherib, in turn, sent servants to Jerusalem with this message: “Have any of the national gods of the lands been able to rescue their land from my power? Who among all the gods of these nations that my predecessors completely destroyed was able to rescue his people from my power, that your God should be able to deliver you from my power?” (2 Chron 32:13-14). On the basis of his prior victories, the king of Assyria assumed victory this time, too. 

Here’s what he did not know, however. The God of Israel was not just another god of the nations. He was not a god made by human hands. No, the God of Israel was the all-powerful, all-knowing, only God. He not only was not made by human hands; He was first the Creator of human hands. This God would indeed do what no other “god” could do: rescue His people from Sennacherib’s power. 

There is no God but our God. Trust Him no matter what you face today. 

PERSONAL REFLECTION: How much do you lean on God’s power?    

DAILY PRAYER: “Father, You are God, and there is no other like You. Amen!”
